Enhanced Response.

If you've long pined for a lightweight running shoe that can tackle more than just short tempo runs, look no further than the Hoka One One Women's Hupana Shoe. Designed to transition between training sessions or long runs alike, the Hupana provides a smooth, responsive feel underfoot, so you're able to make the most of your workout.

To start, the knit upper offers a sock-like feel, while the seamless design prevents chafing and hot spots and is designed as such that it allows your foot to breathe whether you're trucking through a hot 5k or enjoying a walk through the park with your dogs. Additionally, the Hupana's midsole maintains cushioned comfort, shock attenuation, and enhances overall energy return, so you're able to make the most of time constraints or your stride. And since the Hupana's sole is the same material as the midsole, the weight of the shoe is kept to an overall minimum, ensuring day-long comfort and support.

  • Knit upper prevents chafing and breathes well

Not Your Average Hokas

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I gave these as a gift and she was very impressed with these Hoka’s. She uses these mostly for work shoes, she walks at least 5 miles throughout the day. They have great support and are breathable so your feet don’t get hot. They fit true to size. I think she’ll be buying more of these in the future.

breathable and comfortable

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

Got these for someone who spends a lot of time on their feet walking the dogs, gardening, running errands, taking grandkids around etc. and whose hurt are usually sore by the end of the day. She has not only loved the comfort of this shoe but how well they breathe as the hotter months are coming. Fits maybe a tad small but pretty true to size.

Light as a Feather

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I have been wearing my Hoka One One Hupana shoes to work for the last several weeks. I have a standing desk and they have been very comfortable to stand all day in. They are incredibly lightweight thanks to the RMAT (blended soft super-comfy foam) midsole and sole. My initial reaction was that they ran a bit small. After a few wears I feel they fit perfectly. Last night I went for a sunset walk up Ferguson. It was a hot Utah evening and my feet never got too sweaty because of the knit upper. I have extremely high arches, and the support is a perfect fit for the curve of my foot. These shoes are not meant for trail running but they held up flawlessly!

From taking the dogs for a walk, running a few miles, or a mellow hike up the canyon the Hoka One One Hupana shoe is durable and made of quality materials. I highly suggest you invest yourself in a pair!

These shoes are great for running errands. I've used them for walking to doggo, gardening, aggressively mopping, speed walking, and running after a cat.

Quite comfortable to say the least. I think they're honestly a great shoe for someone who's life/job requires a lot of standing. I wouldn't recommend these for hiking though.. In my opinion the tread on the bottom is too squishy and not as supportive as I would like. But someone might think differently. Which is totally okay. The upper mesh material is nice and breathable to ensure your feets comfort in warm temperatures. I wore these in 80 degree weather on a blacktop driveway pulling weeds and my feet stayed pretty cool and no hot spots. While these shoes are quite nice, I would recommend sizing down. I'm normally a women's size 9.5 in Nikes, Adidas, and Five Tens, and these were too big in the 9.5. I would have been good with a 9 or even 8.5, to be honest.

My favorite pair of Hokas yet.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I'm a Hoka convert through and through. Love my OG Stinson's, hit the pavement in a pair of Clifton's, and then I gave a 2nd pair of Clifton's a try, and well, I'm thoroughly hooked. I was surprised to find Hoka had come out with the more "hip" Hupana.

Hoka calls it their "wear all day" shoe and it truly is. The Hupana is low profile, lightweight, utilizes a knit construction in the upper, and is ultimately designed for logging miles.

Overall quality is high, from the sole platform and midsole, to insert, upper and laces, the shoe feels solid. I've been using these mostly for gym workouts and treadmill running, and have been impressed with the lateral stability of the shoe and traction indoors, the 5mm is ideal for close contact with the floor and helping me to feel a bit more agile on those early morning days. I've found the fit to be spot on will all other shoes, confidently ordered a 9.5 and they're perfect. There's even a pitch more room than expected due to the toe box shape. I have narrow foot, so what really has me loving these shoes, is a slightly more narrow fit and knit that hug my foot. I've not had a running shoe fit so just right. Also, I've yet to get a hot spot or blister. Purchase the duberry and it's exactly as pictured, vibrant coral with black accents.

I have been wanting a pair of Hokas and finally pulled the trigger and I am happy I did! I really love these shoes! I am normally a size 9 and that is what I ordered and they fit perfect! The color is just like in the photos, they are beautiful! They felt good from my first workout, didn't seem to have much of a break in period .
